|Dr Chi-Sun Chan, Tuba Soloist|
Dr Chan has chosen Capriccio for Tuba and Band by contemporary British composer Rodney Newton, who has scored music for British films and TV and was Music Consultant to the London Film School for 21 years. In the Capriccio, Newton intertwines extremely fast percussive sections with flowing melodies. Originally written for British tubist James Gourlay in 2002, the piece has become a worldwide favorite for soloists and bands. With several short cadenzas neatly woven into the structure it is effectively a one movement concerto that is sure to please the audience.
